Trivia

The film was a turning point for Feroz Khan. Despite being a negative role, Feroz Khan ended up taking credit for the films success. Feroz Khan stole the show. This did not sit well with Raaj Kumar. Raaj Kumar and Feroz would clash while filming the movie. During the filming of a scene, Raaj Kumar had his back to the camera and was doing a scene with Feroz who was facing the camera. Raaj Kumar had to give a cue to Feroz while saying his dialogue . But while filming the scene Raaj Kumar was not looking at Feroz to give the cue, but looking sideways talking and looking at the wall. This was done so Feroz would mess up his lines and look bad in front of the director. After that Raaj Kumar would constantly give advice to Feroz on how to do his scene. Feroz finally told off Raaj Kumar and told him to mind his own acting and let him do his own his way. See more »
